Okay, so wallpaper. I will admit that more than one of my homes has come with original vintage wallpaper that was, for me, a selling point. I will also admit that removing early 90’s dusty rose and powder blue floral print wallpaper complete with coordinating borders wasn’t something awesome in my life. The key to wallpaper is that it has to be amazing and timeless. I fully understand that these are subjective terms, and that not everyone will agree that a wallpaper mural of an autumn forest scene or textured fabric are amazing or timeless, I feel like we can all agree that those little geese with scarves around their necks were neither. And don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about. Unless you really don’t. In which case… Click here to find delight and enjoyment.
By “Timeless” I mean… Do you know about this wallpaper? Is it from the 60s or today? Or somewhere in between? Or is it just plain cute? (It’s modern, and it’s cute.)
This one is an example of a print that could be old, but in a color scheme that is definitely new, but won’t ever look dated, it will just always look like really fun wallpaper. The mixture of neutrals and brights is what makes it modern and fresh. If it was going tor a vintage vibe it would be brights on brights (on brights) and scream all kinds of flower power references.
